This policy response seems to be driven in part by frustration, a lack of understanding of the nature of the threat, an exaggerated faith in coercive action, and a lack of faith that democratic values are sufficiently flexible to allow for an effective counter-terrorism response. Why Right is Might addresses these misconceptions through a comparative analysis of terrorist campaigns drawn from all \'Four Waves\' of terrorist activity identified in the literature (anti-authoritarian, anti-colonial, Marxist, and religious). This approach serves to gather insights into why individuals embrace terrorist violence, to explore examples of both successful and failed state responses to terrorist threats, and to outline a series of concrete public policy initiatives that, taken as a whole, will amount to a comprehensive and coherent counter-terrorism strategy grounded in respect for human rights, international norms of behaviour, and the rule of law. Traditional human rights discourse tends to focus on condemnation and prohibition - this book seeks to proactively identify human rights-compliant counter-terrorism tools of proven effectiveness that can be deployed to prevent terrorist violence.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Introduction -- Terrorism 101 -- Exploring the social science -- Terrorism and international law -- Counting violent extremism -- Community policing -- Special investigation techniques -- Detention regimes -- Torture and interrogation -- Using force -- Resilience -- Conclusion.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/9397205047<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9397205047#Series\/imperial_college_press_insurgency_and_terrorism_series<\/a>> ; # Imperial College Press insurgency and terrorism series ;<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9397205047#Series\/insurgency_and_terrorism_series_formerly_known_as_imperial_college_press_insurgency_and_terrorism_series<\/a>> ; # Insurgency and terrorism series (formerly known as Imperial College Press Insurgency and Terrorism Series ;<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Avoiding the terrorist trap : why respect for human rights is the key to defeating terrorism<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1019854797<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781783266548<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1019854797<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
